3D printer manufacturer XYZprinting is announcing three new major 3D printing products at CES 2018, with products aimed at schools, consumers, and small businesses. The end goal, CEO Simon Shen said in a statement, is to “provide casual users and small business owners the tools and confidence to try their hand at this technology and incorporate it into their everyday lives.”
One product being showcased are the da Vinci Color AiO, a full-color desktop 3D printer that incorporates 3D scanning within the machine. According to the company, the machine combines inkjet and 3D printing together to allow for creating “true depth of color” and industrial-grade performance. This product is aimed at small businesses and schools – prototyping for the former, and education for the latter. The printer is priced at $3800.
The second product is the da Vinci Nano – a compact 3D printer aimed at the home and school market. With that in mind, the printer has a number of safety features as well as a plant-based filament that doesn’t pose any safety risks. Additionally, the company has created a K-12 curriculum for the printer that it’s offering to schools. This product goes hand in hand the third product, the da Vinci 3D Pen Cool – a standalone 3D-printing pen that can be used to introduce the concept of 3D printing to kids and interested hobbyists for less than $50.
